#ChooseEurope: Where world-class technology meets Swiss reliability


Politically independent and yet a crucial component of the European single market, Switzerland shares history, languages, and culture with Europe. As not only the continent’s but also the world’s innovation leader, Switzerland has developed into Europe’s innovation lab, attracting the most cutting-edge technologies and talents. We are proud to be part of the #ChooseEurope campaign and to season it with a pinch of Swissness.

The Greater Zurich Area feels like a five-star hotel. Its infrastructure and quality of life are unmatched.
